    Gold Brembo question

    So opinions welcome on this so haven’t been driving car too much lately but last couple of day have been out more or less when I press brakes bit of a tump noise out of passenger front. Also get a bit of noise out of them as if pads ain’t engaging flat and one edge of it is making noise off groovess in disc this doesn’t happen a lot but I very annoying when dose plus I don’t feel there at their best might be sticking a bit they do work but wouldn’t put you through the window if ya know what I mean
    Question
    What’s involved in refurbish
    Any links
    Any links for seals pistons etc
    Paint type decals may aswell do the lot
    Or company who does the lot if needs be
    Thanks

    Is it doing it going from reverse to first and vice versa Gary as it sounds like pad knock back

    No Gordon drive out of drive way forwards happen then and even after a couple of peddle presses rare enough twice today though. Is it just seals that get redone that’s it

    Probably need a helicoil kit if your taken those calipers off most the time they pull the treads when taken the bolts off. It’s not expensive for the kit.

    As for the color of the calipers if your thinking of painting them. I used Honda inca y61p and turned out very close to the original color

    Pistons don’t usually stick in brembos . And seals only go from track heat so I’d say it’s just the Pads locking to the disc because of the water . If it’s squealing it’s the lip in the disc And the pad hitting it
